High Flyers Tarifa is designed in shabby-chic Moroccan style with private rooms and a beautiful terrace to relax on. It creates a fantastic shared accommodation experience, with lovely people staying too. Based in the old town, a stone is thrown away from all the cafes, bars, and restaurants. It has six bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, living / dining room, and a great rooftop terrace with barbecue and stunning views of Tarifa castle and port. The rooms for two people can be twin or double configuration.

The house is located in the old town of Tarifa. Best of all, it is in a fantastic location, seconds away from Tarifa’s best restaurants, cafes, and bars, and have all the atmosphere of this historical old walled town at your fingertips. You are also just two minutes walk from the beach. You will be sharing the house with the other High Flyers Tarifa’s guests which helps make a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Most people go home having made new friends.

Program

One of the highlights of a High Flyers holiday is sharing your week with other kiters from all over the world. Because you are not juggling other clients and sessions, it will be just you as a small group of kite surfers, no beginners, for the whole week. This gives you the ultimate flexibility to chase the wind, go to the best spots that you may not know about as a tourist on your own, and do downwinders together. As part of the team-up with Ozu-Tarifa, High Flyers holiday can offer you rental of all the latest Cabrinha kites and boards. If you want to boost high with a switchblade or work on your wave riding with the drifter and a strapless wavebard, then no problem, you tell them what kit you want. Bring your kites and rent a board or rent everything, they can accommodate whatever you require.

Location

Tarifa is such a wonderful place for long-term residents as well as holidaymakers. The Mediterranean diet and family life and the sense of community in this town are so special. Tarifas not only has the awesome kitesurfing conditions but also so much more to offer. With stunning scenery and spectacular views across the straits of Gibraltar to Morocco (just 12 kilometers away), you can make any day trips to Tangier, whale watching, great mountain biking, rock climbing, and horse riding on the beach to name a few things. Tarifa has a growing reputation as a gastro town with a whole host of fabulous restaurants, from traditional tapas to modern European and to a superb vegetarian restaurant. The bars and the nightlife are legendary. It’s a good thing the wind mostly comes in the afternoons.
